Call for Proposals: Rural Sanitation Approaches and Costings Analysis (WaterAid, UNICEF and Plan USA) - by: ruthmiskelly http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/95-calls-for-proposals-tenders-applications-expressions-of-interest-projects-and-awards/20379-call-for-proposals-rural-sanitation-approaches-and-costings-analysis-wateraid-unicef-and-plan-usa#20379 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/95-calls-for-proposals-tenders-applications-expressions-of-interest-projects-and-awards/20379-call-for-proposals-rural-sanitation-approaches-and-costings-analysis-wateraid-unicef-and-plan-usa#20379 WaterAid, UNICEF and Plan USA are seeking proposals for analysing rural sanitation approaches being used in the sector, with the aim of developing two practical guidance documents – one for costing programmes and one for developing approaches tailored to local situations.

Deadline: 20 February 2017

In the rural sanitation sector, there has been a shift over the past couple of decades towards demand-led approaches in the rural sanitation sector. Community-led approaches (CLTS) have predominated, but other approaches like sanitation marketing or smart subsidies have gained momentum more recently. However, there are still several common problems, such as insufficient recognition of their limitations or understanding of their relative performance. Approaches have sometimes rigid definitions and sometimes blurred ones, which stifles innovation, learning and opportunities to combine and tailor approaches to the changing contexts in which they operate. The cost of facilitating and delivering these approaches is often not well understood or estimated.

To address this, Plan International USA, WaterAid and UNICEF are starting a joint programme to review and consolidate existing evidence and experience on these issues, with an aim to develop guidance documents for rural sanitation programme policy-makers, planners and implementers.

The joint programme has three tasks:

1) Review and analysis of rural sanitation approaches.
2) Development of a (rural sanitation) costings guidance.
3) Development of a (rural sanitation) approaches guidance.

At this stage, we are requesting proposals on the three tasks (<3,500 words) or on individual tasks (<2,000 words) by 20 February 2017.

NRW reduction competition - Dreampipe II - by: Froeydis http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/95-calls-for-proposals-tenders-applications-expressions-of-interest-projects-and-awards/20305-nrw-reduction-competition-dreampipe-ii#20305 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/95-calls-for-proposals-tenders-applications-expressions-of-interest-projects-and-awards/20305-nrw-reduction-competition-dreampipe-ii#20305
Dreampipe II has a total prize purse of about GBP 1,000,000.

The competition should appeal to water utilities, consultants, entrepreneurs, financiers, and NGOs.

Dreampipe II, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), consists of three Phases:

—Phase 1 (up to ten prizes of £30,000 each) requires only the preparation of a business plan.

—Phase 2 will involve implementing a demonstration project to reduce NRW in a selected water utility in a developing country.

—Phase 3 will be based on a fully structured deal for an expansion project in the same utility company.

The main objective of Dreampipe II is to find ways to bring financing from non-traditional sources (e.g. not from international financial institutions (IFIs), bilateral development agencies or governments). We know that financing is available, and the top-priority NRW-reduction interventions can pay for themselves in 3–7 years. The potential is there, but it’s not being realized. We need innovators who can help unlock the potential!

Please consider submitting an entry. Or you may know someone who is interested? We urge you to pass this information along so we can work together to combat NRW.

The deadline for registration for Phase 1 is 15 February 2017. You must submit your application by 15 March 2017.

Please see the attached flyer.
